    Anyone feel like showing me what's up with Warmachine Mk.2 and vassal tonight? Haven't played since I moved back to Norway 2 years back, and reading this thread makes me want to pick it up again.

    I might be around for a small game, but I can't really say yet.

    Your books are out of date, yes, and you will need new cards, yes. But one of us can send you both of the MK 2 PDFs that PP released for free if you want the rules and cards to look at before you buy.

    Coolios. If anyone has those PDFs I'd love a copy.

    Can't wait for FoW: Cygnar. I really want to know more about the new warcaster, the Firefly, and the chance to use the Stormsmith artillery thingy and the Commandos.

    In other news, finished cleaning the mold lines off my plastic kit. Next step is to assemble a sweet pose for my Cyclone. Also, PP if you're listening, I humbly request all 'jacks to be made in plastic if possible.

    I'm not saying the Cyclone marshaled to the ATGM is the bestest thing in the entire world, but for scenario play it is pretty much the most awesome. Covering Fire or 2d3 Thunderbolt shots? You mean I can hold or take an area at need?

    Yes.

    Yes I like that a lot.

    Got my Cygnar heavy all magnetized today.

    Still had to pin the right arm and the boiler since they didn't sit flush with the join, which I find pretty funny.

    so with aoe templates, once you have rolled where it hits, anyting under it is considerd a blast outside of the inital hit, do you have to roll to hit them or do they just get hit due to be under the aoe ? NM question answered

    So new question, can you boost a charge dmg roll ? since its already boosted by the charge ?

    Since charge attacks provide a boost you cannot boost again. There isn't anything ever that lets you boost twice, but keep an eye out for abilities that provide "an additional die". Those you can boost.

    I can probably do that, unless someone else is excited to have at it.

    Pretty much whenever. I'm waiting for an electrician to show up and have a look at rewiring my hot tub. After that, I dont have much going on.

    Cool, I'll be watching games on vassal while I read up on rules, so just poke me there when you're ready.

    If anyone else has the time now *coughdraevencough*, you can feel free to grab a game against someone else.

    Anyone had an issue where you don't get scroll bars on the map in Vassal?

  • ErandusErandus Registered User
    edited January 2010
    Make sure the window is maximized, so it's not accidentally in windowed mode but bigger than your monitor will show. Drag a model out on to the playing surface, and then drag it to the edge of what you CAN see of the map, and the map should scroll when the model gets to the end. Try zooming the scale in and out a little and see if that wakes it up.

    Hey Otaku, can you change the Vassal warmachine module link to point to this site: http://vassalwmh.ipbfree.com/index.php?showforum=11? The link you have there points to an outdated version.

    You could actually link to http://download679.mediafire.com/xjynugzwmtwg/mklgmktonqj/WarmachineHordesModule_3.1.1.vmod

    That is a direct link to the download

    EDIT: N/M, Eternal's link is better. It goes to where the vmod updates are posted, instead of directly to a certain version.

    Yes, but then when they update it again the link will be broken. If you link to where I pointed to it will always have the latest.

    Is there much background about Magnus(either Traitor or Walord versions), or Ashlynn D'Elyse out there? While I have a good chunk of Menoth, a mercenary force seems like fun. pMagnus is obviously a jack caster, and Ashlynn seems to be a finesse melee caster. Not really sure how the rest of their respective merc armies play...

    Yea, the Renegades look pretty spot on. Arc Nodes with a small one shot ICBM. Hit and Run and Kill Box both seem like solid feats, too.

    yeah, almost everyone is playing MK2 rules on vassal , it doesn't really have the rules, it just has everything you need to play.

    eMagnus' feat. Choose two table edges. Enemy models starting their activation in Magnus' control area can not advance towards those edges for 1 round.

    Really good game though, I really deserved to have lost it. Crazy rolls at the end.
